‘Nightwing’ #79 Sells Out And Gets A Second Printing

by Olly MacNamee

Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s Nightwing #79 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, Nightwing #78, and sells out. And the inevitable second printing – and new cover by Redondo – will be published on May 25th.

And as second printing covers go, the one is up there withs one of the best with a fun callback to the Batman show of 1966.

“Dick Grayson has inherited Alfred’s fortune, a puppy, and a whole lot of questions.

Who is Mayor Zucco, and what is her relation to the man who murdered Dick’s parents? What sinister plans does Blockbuster have for Blüdhaven? What kind of dog food is best for a three-legged puppy? To answer these questions, Dick’s going to need a little help from his friends, past and present.”

But, that’s not all DC Comics have to report where Nightwing is concerned. They’ve even released information for upcoming issues too, starting with Nightwing #80:

“Looking ahead to Nightwing #80’s “Leaping into the Light” part 3 on May 18, a new villain stalks the back alleys of Blüdhaven, removing the hearts of the city’s most vulnerable. Who is this terrifying new menace named Heartless, and will he be able to resist plucking out the biggest heart in all of Blüdhaven? You’ll need to read this (literally) heart-wrenching issue to find out!”

Nightwing #81:

“Then in Nightwing #81 on Jun 15, Dick Grayson trades out his escrima sticks for a magnifying glass and a sleuth hat to investigate Blüdhaven’s new mayor, Melinda Zucco, and find out how the daughter of the man who murdered Dick’s parents came to power in Nightwing’s city. But his investigative adventure is cut short when he comes face to face with the most horrendous villain in the history of Blüdhaven—HEARTLESS.”

And in Nightwing #82 – out on July 20th – “Melinda Zucco’s connection to the man who killed Dick Grayson’s parents wasn’t a surprise to the Blüdhaven hero, but what the former Robin discovers about Melinda’s ties to the Flying Graysons leaves the usually upbeat detective speechless!”
